Because testing has been basically frozen for some months it doesn't
hold "recent versions of packages".

These people currently use stable+backports. - Usually they are happy
with http://www.fs.tum.de/~bunk/packages/ combined with either KDE3.1
or GNOME2.2.

This also what I recommend on debian-user-german or in Usenet, I
always warn them about the dangers of Pinning and the missing security
updates for testing.
